Google Search By Image Explained

This year, Google Search has got an exciting new feature, Google Search By Image.There are several ways by which you can use this new tool from Google, here I will explain all of them to you -

Drag And Drop

Just drag and drop an image from the web or your computer into the search box on to find related Images from the web.

This feature allows you to search for related images using a single image that you need to drag and drop on the Google Images site, the link to which has been provided above.

This method of searching related images beats the browsing option anytime.

Upload an Image

On, click the camera icon, then select “Upload an image.” Select the image you want to use to start your search.

This option will help you search for related images.All you need to do is upload an image and you will instantly get related images.

This option may take a little longer than the Drag and Drop option which we talked about above.

Copy and paste the URL for an image

Found an image on the web you’re curious about? Right-click the image to copy the URL. On, click the camera icon, and “Paste image URL”.

You should see related images instantly.

This method is much faster than any of the two methods above stated.

Right-click an image on the web

To search by image even faster,download the Chrome extension or the Firefox extension. With the extension installed, simply right-click an image on the web to search Google with that image.

So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and use the Google Search By Image and see what it has to hold for yourself!
